The Black Umfolosi 5

Sunday 3rd Nov 2013

BU5Gumbots.largeThe Universal Hall is delighted to welcome Zimbabwe's greatest ambassadors, who perform music inspired by the traditional song and dance of their native southern Africa. Their trademark harmonies mixed with intricate rhythms, clicking and clapping are highlighted during their brilliantly choreographed shows with a movements ranging from subtle to vigorous stomping and leaping! Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.

"It was the best of all the festival, they have an incredible way to sing, to dance – a beautiful presence on the stage." Milan Festival
